Jim is proof that life begins at 60! A Greensboro native, he has spent most of his professional life in the few blocks around Joymongers. For 25 years he and his brother ran North State Chevrolet, then, after its sale, they developed the remaining downtown 6 acres into the two Greenway apartment communities. Beer lover that he is, he next partnered with Mike and his son Brian to open Joymongers. His favorite activities are music and beer research!
“Uncle” Mike Rollinson
Mike is the guy to thank for our endless varieties of great beer. He was Head Brewer for a regional brewery for almost ten years and welcomed the opportunity to start his own. Mike has ridden his motorcycle across the eastern seaboard of the US and Canada exploring hundreds of breweries. He loves live music, his dogs and beer. Not necessarily in that order.
Brian spent the last nine years in the health benefits industry managing corporate accounts and taking care of enrolled employees. Fortunately, we sent a Hostage Rescue Team in to drag him to safety. He now smiles a lot more. As part of the owners commitment to our second hometown, Brian now lives in Winston-Salem and manages Barrel Hall. He loves his Joymongrel, Bubba, all kinds of music and he is a talented photo artist.
Scott has been serving drinks and food in Greensboro since….well let’s just say a long time. He
has been in and out of the service industry working various positions at some of Greensboro’s
most loved dining and drinking establishments. In addition to his service industry work Scott
is an Alumni of UNCG Geography Department and worked in other professions as well over the
years as a Carpenter, Composite Shop / R&D manager in the kayak industry, and a Geographic Information Science Specialist. Scott lives in Greensboro with his wife Jennifer and their two boys Henry and Charlie along with the family dogs Skipper and Petey. Outside of work and family he loves Yankee Baseball and riding his motorcycle.
Bubba is our Head Joymongrel. Still just a pup, Bubba is learning important skills like laying on the concrete floor, sniffing our guests and begging for food crumbs. He is a rescue dog of uncertain heritage and is by far our most loved staff member.
